    Tour Highlights


    • I went to Old Town tour with Martyna and highly recommend to everyone. Deep knowledge of the history and entertaining at the same time. Very good introduction to the Polish culture too. Fluent English and nice personality. Jewish Warsaw with Anna – excellent presentation. Orange Umbrella is the best Free Tour of Warsaw. I tried there competitor first and didn’t like it and quit after about 10 min.

    • My partner and I took a walking tour of Warsaw old town with orange umbrella. Our guide Peter (perhaps spelled Piotr) was fantastic, spoke excellent English and made the tour informative and interesting. He was happy to recommend local restaurants, museums etc and really brought this beautiful part of the city to life. I couldn’t recommend the tour and guide highly enough.

    • As I travelled alone through Warsaw, I thought of having a guide might be a good idea. So I came up to the orange “Umbrella Free Tour”, where I met Anna our guide at the King Sigismund’s Column. She is originally from Warsaw and knows great spots. The tour lastet about 2 hours during which she shared her overwhelmingly huge knowledge about the city and its history with us. It was very interesting to listen to her and she always had funny anecdotes to a lot of places we went. She was really helpful, answering everybodys questions and giving really good recommendations on other places to visit while one stays in Warsaw. Thanks to her I was eating in a realistic “Milkbar” in Praga afterwards. I can just recommend everyone to do this tour, especially with Anna as a guide!

    • Our Old Town tour with Gavel was very, very good. He knows the material, expresses it well, understands and answers all questions. He keeps track of his visitors. I highly recommend this tour. He carries the umbrella so you can see him in crowds.

    • We were on Joanne’s 10am tour of the Old Town this morning in the light rain. She was very knowledgeable and the tour moved at a good speed. She was mindful of all in the group and was an excellent communicator. History came alive especially her discussion of politics in the late 18th century. Thank you Joanne.
